Sad days to come (for me)

As you can see J is very proud of his new spidyman lunch box that comes with it's own sandwich container!! He talks about going back to school for 5K with excitement to the point of actually agreeing to go to bed at "school" bedtime. (starting at 8pm with a book and prayers).
Here's a conversation between Nick and J.
Nick: "Are you excited about school starting, bud?"
J: "yah, but momma's not."
Nick: "Why?"
J; "cause she's gonna miss me."
That's right folks, half days were just fine but this whole day business and they need a nap mat, what's with that? Then it's just too long a day for them. Besides B is going to miss him terribly too. They have played together so well this summer it's actually amazing. No, I don't want him gone for 8.5 hrs. out of the day. He gets home and has 4hrs and 20min. with me before bed.
It will be a terrible adjustment for me. But on the flip side, it's great for him. And really it will be good for B and I. To have that quality time together as mother and daughter. All that shopping time we will have and manicures, and cleaning house. Cause she loves all those things. I'm afraid I might create a little mama's girl to the extreme! But it will be fun.
But I will miss my guy!!

Amy, haven't heard from you in so long. What's going on in your life these days?
Wow, 8 1/2 hours of school for a 5 yr. old is a REALLY long day. Even in high school my kids aren't gone that long! I'm with you, I think I would miss my kids terribly being gone that long at that age!
Give me a jingle at my email:
